Scorpion Chess. Poisonous Scorpions instead of pawns.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

No, it's exactly the same as a pawn, except for the the two additional knight leaps, which cannot be used for capture. No initial double-step oblique move. I don't know how useful the Scorpion is, except that it seems to work. /Mats
